All That Glitters: Tips To Achieve Beautiful Metallic Lids

Carolyn Englar

Sometimes, you just want to swipe on a quick coat of mascara and run out the door. And we totally understand that there is a time and a place for a simple, neutral eye.
But there are also those moments in life when those eyes just need to sparkle. And what better way to refresh your look than with some glitter and shine for fall? Glittery metallic lids were all over the fall runways, and we’re here to show you which products can get you that supermodel look at home.
Don’t be nervous – even a make-up novice can achieve this look! Here, our top tips to get the look.
Keeping It Neutral: To get the low-key version of this look, we recommend using a neutral color that’s not too pigmented. And yes ladies, glitter can be worn in the office – just keep it light and go for subtle earth tones that will add a hint of shimmer to your usual make-up routine. To bring this look from day to night, just pair it with some eyeliner or a bold lip, and you’re good to go.
Get In Line: Love your liner? Then give this trend a try with a glitter pencil. Apply your base shadow and then pick a glitter liner in a darker complimentary color – the classic black or grey liner will work as well. We love this look when it’s a bit messy, so smudging is encouraged!
Go Hard Or Go Home: If you’re planning a big night out and want to achieve a truly dramatic eye, then pick a bold color (we love greens, purples and blues for this coming season) and make your eyes pop! Apply a matte base and then layer it with a glitter shadow. And if you’re feeling the dark side, apply some liquid black liner (glitter optional!) and add a cat eye swoop at the ends for a really dramatic look.
